since the sandy hook shootings, and said for the first time since then, the connecticut legislature was back in session. governor dan malloy made on emotional plea to lawmakers some of them from newtown itself a plea to take action in memory of the victims. >> and yet in the midst of one of the worst days in our history, we also saw the best of our state. teachers and a therapist that sacrificed their live pros texting students. a principal and school psychologist that ran into harm's way. our brave connecticut state troopers, newtown's local law enforcement and firemen and others that responded courageously when called upon. sorry. >> jennifer: it's okay. it's heart breaking. but it also offers some hope that connecticut will move forward on gun control legislation whether or not washington does. and it's not just connecticut. in new york governor andrew cuomo also called for strengthening gun laws including ban on assault weapons. >> we are proposing today common sense measured. and i say to you forget the extremists. it's simple. no one hunts with an assault r
first major vote congress did pass legislation to help sandy victims, a $9.7 billion package, and the majority of republicans did vote for the plan presumably bending to significant public pressure. but about a third of the republican caucus actually voted against it. against a bill to help hurricane victims, and that includes some major figures like representative paul ryan. that is just one of the many signs of fracture within the republican caucus which is still reeling from yesterday's tough fight over the reelection of john boehner as speaker. he may have prevailed, but not all of his members were happy about it and one member of the anti-boehner attempted cue got caught red handed. he was caught writing a message on his ipad where he listed republicaned he thought could be convince to join him in opposing the speaker. the title of the document was called "you would be fired if this goes out." in the end it did go out, but nobody got fired. he didn't get what he wanted and many of those on his list ultimately threw their support behind john boehner. b
'm jennifer granholm. in the wake of the sandy hook elementary school shootings, you recall the nra suggested all schools install armed guards to prevent a similar tragedy. >> the only way to stop a monster from killing our kids is to be personally involved and invested in a plan of absolute protection. the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. >> jennifer: of course wayne lapierre went on to suggest that there should be armed personnel inside our schools, and our next guest thinks that's a good idea. bob marshall has drafted legislation that at least one person be armed inside of our schools in virginia. welcome inside "the war room." >> it could also be a good lady with a gun as an off-duty deputy sheriff proved last week when someone entered a theater with a gun. >> jennifer: which is better from your perspective? should be it an armed teacher? an armed guard with a gun? would the armed person have prevented the sandy hook tragedy in your mind? >> let me give you the background? virginia there are 1980 public schools. we have 552 a
in the wake of sandy hook and did you like the movie? >> first of all i got the assignment, and the first showing was at 10:30 this morning, and i was to be back here at 2:30 and i just made it back. it is a very long, sweeping movie, but it doesn't feel like it. i definitely felt -- it was a little awkward to watch the film and know that guns are such a hot button issue right now in america, but in this movie they shoot the bad guy, and that is a very important element. you know so clearly who is good and who is bad, and whatever joy you get out of it it's as old as the fairytale itself. and quentin terantino rescheduled the opening because of what occurred. >> jennifer: i'm not a big violence fan, but i loved this movie. so what is the best movie of all of the nominees to glean sort of a lesson from this year's political environment? >> i will say the film most like the political environment nowadays, of all of the ones that came out whether they were nominated or not was paranormal 4. because it is weird and just keeps happening over and over again. >> jennifer: i
